Another Xmas pressie - D

Happy Saturday to all of you

Today I was browsing  the net and came across a tutorial on how to make a mini photo frame using lolly sticks so I thought why not!

I painted the sticks brown, then crackle medium and beige on the top.  I used the beige on the flowers and used the pearl gems from my stash I assembled the lolly sticks as stated and voila.. the mini frame was created. 

Not much else to state about this project except why not give it a go.  

The photos show the frame empty, with a pic of my lovely mum holding my doggie, the back of frame and  not assembled.  My mum and my little doggie are now both in heaven and sorely missed.  Might end up leaving the pic in it and keeping the frame.
